Manor GP To Be Called Virgin Racing As New Entry List Published
Manor Grand Prix are to be called Virgin Racing after their sponsorship deal with Virgin Group was confirmed following another entry list release from the FIA.
The team name was published today, along with confirmation of other team names and drivers. Timo Glock is the the Virgin teams only current driver.
Felipe Massa will take the #7 car at Ferrari despite finishing lower than new team mate Fernando Alonso. Ferrari also still hold the team name Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, despite claims from Santander that they were the new title sponsor.
Brawn GP still remain a name on the list as the Mercedes GP name change has not gone through, they will probably be hoping for a sponsors name to be placed in the title.
Toyota’s spot on the list has disappeared, and we will not find out if Sauber have done enough to gain a place on the grid until later in December.
